Default Deep Frier = Computer?! (DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!)

I have no idea how they came across this one....but apparently you can submerge your CPU, MOBO, GPU etc in cooking oil and nothing will happen to it! It makes for a fanless system running rather cool and looking more disgusting than ever. Again...I don't know who first got the urge to dump their computer in a McD's fry cooker with GOOD intensions but this is just about the strangest breakthrough in the PC world I have EVER SEEN. Read on...

That's pretty amazing, but I bet it's fun having to empty out all of that cooking oil to replace, fix, or modify anything. It'd have to be one **** of a mess in there.

meh simple solution to water cooling though, just use the cooking oil instead, if the system leaks, no biggie....sept for the cleaning ><.

cooking oil might not look as cool as water through the pipes though ><.
